>>> let me finish tonight with this. the obama administration has found a way to offer birth control to women who want it without infringing on religious belief. it's a victory for the president and roman catholics. how do we ensure that religious organizations are not forced to pay for it? allow employees of religious institutions access to stand alone coverage for birth control from a third party. covering the costs with small offsets have to take parts or they will put their policies on sale. the key here is it gets around a pair of goals that were in don flikt. regular use of birth control is one that works. the other goal is to protect religions from doing something they believe is morally wrong. my own belief is that the solution the obama administration reached here is win/win. i say this to someone who believes in the clinton case, that abortion should be safe, legal and rare. getting birth control to women for free will keep it rare. to keep the catholic church out of that transaction keeps it closer to the goal. this is what good, smart, progressive, morally upright
immigration speech in las vegas. and the fight for fairness is headed straight to main street. the obama administration today announcing they're going after some of the people allegedly involved in the 2007 financial meltdown. sounds like a lot to do all at once, right? yes. and it's part of the strategy. it's what nbc's first read calls flooding the zone. pushing many issues so the gop can't come together and oppose any single one. and there are already hopeful signs this president is going to get some important progress on key issues. joining me now is james peterson and molly ball. thanks to both of you for your time. >> good to be here. >> thanks. >> molly, you recently wrote about the washington gridlock. the headline reads "is washington getting less dysfunctional?" and i'm quoting from the article. from immigration reform to the debt ceiling, there are rampant signs the capitol isn't the gridlocked mess to which we've become accustomed. is there really a light at the end of the tunnel? i mean, how is this shifting? >> well, the jury's still out. when i wrote that piece i had a lot
on coordinating with democratic senators or dealing with the administration's own efts to support president obama's priorities. how critical, joy, is party unity to the president's seblgd term agenda? >> well, absolutely critical. because harry reid decided not to do full-on filibuster reform, he still has to get through the senate and with 60 votes. and on the house side, obviously, the same thing applies. now that john boehner has broken the rule, that he's willing to move bills through with democrats as well as republicans, he still needs to hold together enough democrats so you don't see them walk away with some of these ideas. the main thing that the president has going for him is not so much the party unanimity. they are almost sort of left out in the cold because the establishment is pushing them back. they no longer have an interest in them. they want them to sit down and be kwooit because they're embarrassing them. >> five days before the state of the union address and the president seems to have done well pushing forward on his agenda. got passed the fiscal cliff. immigration front and
. transparency is important here and president obama releasing some records is a positive first step. but there's going to be a president after president obama. and who knows how that leader will handle these serious matters. there must be consistency from one administration to the next. even though i trust president obama. if we set a president now, are we going to live with that if the next president is someone we don't agree with? no matter the politics, that's the question we should think about. policy should be around the precedent we set. no president should be able to go unchecked. i was opposed to it under bush. i'm opposed to it now. i'm afraid for the future. we must watch this carefully. i'm a.m. sharpton, thanks for watching.
